Joe Burrow was benched the following week, during the Bengals' 21-16 loss to the Browns, and got some extra time to prepare for his first playoff game. Meanwhile, Derek Carr is coming off a wild 35-32 overtime win against the Chargers that granted Las Vegas the No. 7 seed in the playoffs.

Saturday's 26–19 loss was Carr's postseason debut. He threw for 310 yards and one touchdown, while tossing an interception on Las Vegas's final offensive play.

Following the loss, Carr endorsed interim coach Rich Bisaccia to be hired as the team's permanent coach.

"I think we can all think that he's the right guy," Carr said. "He's proven that people listen to him. Our team listens to him. And I love him so much, I'm thankful for him. All those things will be decisions that I don't make, I don't get to make. I just play quarterback ... but with everything that went on, if you really look at what happened, all the pieces missing, everything that changed, yeah, he held it together."

Bisaccia took over as interim coach in mid-October, following coach Jon Gruden's resignation after the release of anti-LGBTQ+ and misogynistic emails. Bisaccia led Las Vegas to a 7–5 record this season. With it, the Raiders made their first playoff appearance since 2016.
